DEDICATION 




Walter E. Howe 



Kate Friskin 



In these years of war and necessity, it has been Miss Friskin and Mr. 
Howe who have kept ns mindful of our cultural heritage. They have given 
the best of their work to us in order that we might better enjoy and find in- 
spiration from our school life. It is through their wisdom and understanding 
that we have been encouraged to be creative. This encouragement has made 
us discover a part of ourselves that we never knew existed. YYe have learned 
to appreciate and, in this way. have become aware of the beautiful, as well as 
the necessary, things of life. 



Thus it is that with all humility and deep love, we, the Class of 1945. 
dedicate our Yearbook to Miss Friskin and Mr. Howe. 



It is many years since we first came to Abbot, and as time goes by, we 
recognize in it it's full strength and meaning. The roots of our school are 
buried deep, and we see in them the long history and rich tradition to which 
we have fallen heir. We could be likened to the young leaves of the mother 
tree, for were we not privileged to be a part of it for a little while, and to draw 
upon it for strength and growth? 

The trunk is perhaps the most important part of a tree, and thus, it 
could represent our intellectual life. Through guidance and deep love the 
best in each one of us has been brought out. We have gained in purpose and 
in steadfastness. We discovered the course we wished to follow and were 
given every chance to continue in this direction. 

And then, since our roots and trunk were sound, many branches, repre- 
senting other interests and activities, came into view. There have been ma- 
terial things to show for this action. We have created, we have interpreted, 
and we have produced results worthy of our efforts. 

We also needed food for growth, and we found a wealth of air, sunshine, 
and happiness to feed our bodies as well as our minds. 

And so, Abbot has provided for us all that is necessary for any develop- 
ment. We came to school uncertain and unsure of ourselves: but now we 
leave it confident and strengthened. We feel we are better able to meet the 
great demands which this confused and tragic world must make upon us.

"A Little Bit of 
Heaven' 

After all the patient (?) years 
of waiting — Intervale! Will we 
ever forget it? The suspense of 
that four-hour trip would have 
killed us if it hadn't been for the 
popcorn and the crazy bridge 
hands plus the fact that each hill 
got bigger and bigger 'til finally 
(ranmore raised its vicious head. 
(Oh! little did we know!!) And 
by the time we'd relayed our- 
selves to the Inn, we were more 
than ready for the first of those 
many divine, enormous meals. 

Then Cranmore!! All of Miss 
Carpenter's assurances back in 
the comfortable Claremont flew 
out of our heads. We were weak! 
Jaws dropped, goggles were ad- 
justed, and some frantically 
bought tickets for the " half-way 
mark. " But it looked cruel and 
wicked! They certainly loved us 
that day — sprawling forms clut- 
tering up the slope and sitz-marks 
dotting the trail. We had fun, but 
don't forget those fabulous les- 
sons from the tall blond — not that 
they helped ! ! ! 

The movie that night was good 
for laughs — Twinkle Watts et al. 
Then bed — with the day-scholars' 
hair in rags and Bee's frantic 
gong ringing through the halls. 
Then quiet??? 

Wednesday: Esther's pick-ups, 
Miss Hearsey's evening reading, 
the marshmallows and Levi's col- 
lect telephone call. And Thursday 
morning Miss Hearsey saying 
that she "'had meant to ski, but 
the snow and wind were just too 
much!" At least the storm was a 
blessing to somebody! 

The trip back was hysterical : 
bridge again, making and frantic 
learning of our songs, and the 
mad rush to get off the train. No, 
we never will forget Intervale !

FLOODS OVERRUN HOLLAND 

Reported by Correspondent Mitchell 

Joan Mitchell, foreign correspondent, reports that as 
soon as she set foot in Holland all the dikes broke and 
the country became flooded. They are investigating the 
causes of this phenomenon, and Miss Mitchell has been 
recalled, as it is believed that the future safety of Hol- 
land hangs in the balance. 



BIG THREE ASKS: WILL HERMIT MAKE 
ANNUAL PILGRIMAGE? 

The official spokesman for the Big Three announced 
today that the Conference has placed an appeal in 
Theater Arts to hermitess Esther Bufferd, requesting her 
not to forego her annual appearance in civilization. In 
past years she has abandoned her cave in Lonely Valley 
only at the spring equinox, leaving a trail of poetry and 
paintings behind her. The Conference feels that her cul- 
tural information will prove invaluable. Last March 
recluse Bufferd was quoted as saying, "Theater Arts is 
my only communication with the outside world." 



FLASHES FROM ABROAD 

Reported by Correspondent Boynton 

Today, in Sing Lo, China, history was made as Miss 
Cynthia Smith, that patient lady from Wellesley, Mas- 
sachusetts, converted her 1500th Chinese woman. At 
the ceremony honoring Miss Smith was an Abbot class- 
mate of hers, Miss Holly Welles, another missionary, 
whose courageous work in bringing musical and the- 
atrical art to the Chinese has been hailed from all 
quarters. 

FLASH: Miss Elizabeth Dickerman, after digging for 
fifteen years in Crete, has unearthed the original snake 
goddess. Wise men from all centers of learning are rush- 
ing to see this famous wonder. 



LATEST NEWS FROM THE PEACE 
CONFERENCE 

Reported by Boynton 
President Paterson and Secretary of the Navy Two- 
mey admit that they are disturbed about the recent 
revolt staged in Guatemala. The instigator of this revolt 
is Ami Persson. Heated discussions are being held at the 
White House. Paterson is setting a new precedent by 
insisting that she will run for only one term. The soul 
retainer of Law and Order at the Conference are the 
hysterical remarks of Robbins the Cabinet jester. 



THE WORLD OF SPORTS 

A list of the United States Olympic teams for 1965 
was released this morning. Women seem to be in the lead. 
Two well-known sports women, Mary Taylor and Sally 
Spear, took the honors in basketball. Barbara Ball is the 
trainer of these two girls. Both of them got their start 
at Abbot Academy. The track team is well taken care 
of, for it consists of Joan Holdsworth, who will be re- 
membered as the young lady who broke the records at 
the IT2A Meet. 

In a furiously played singles match, Andree Luce 
conquered a jinx and won the U. S. tennis nationals. 
Miss Luce played a fast, loose game, which might be 
called the most spectacular of her brilliant career. 

Yesterday afternoon at Falling Downs Helen Xorris 
won the annual steeplechase. The race was close, until 
Miss Xorris, abandoning her mount, cleared the last 
hedge to come in several hundred yards ahead of her 
closest competitor.

THE FUTURE TIMES 



S.D.L. STUMPED IN NEW YORK 

Expert Sally Drew Leavitt of "Information Please," 
known to thousands as S.D.L. , last night failed to 
answer a question put to her for the first time since she 
joined the program five years ago. To Miss Ruth 
Lazarus, Cincinnati schoolmarm, goes the distinction of 
being the one who asked the unanswerable question. 
After Shirley Sommer, master of ceremonies, read the 
famous question, a tense, expectant silence fell on the 
audience and was broken only by guest expert Andrea 
Lyons' appropriate comment, "Whew!" 



SUICIDE BECAUSE OF THWARTED LOVE 

This afternoon the body of Miss Ann Bushnell was 
found lying on the Abbot circle, where she landed after 
leaping from the second step of Draper Hall, fatally 
breaking her neck. The direct cause of the suicide is not 
known, but it is believed that it is because of unfortun- 
ate love, since recently a malicious young woman, Patty 
Patton, stole Miss Bushnell's man. 



POWER PLANT EXPLODES AT PIGEON COVE 

A violent explosion rocked Cape Anne last night 
when the power plant here was completely destroyed. 
The cause of the explosion is not yet known, but it is 
believed that an assistant physicist, Barbara Beecher, 
might have had something to do with it. She is known as 
the "mad scientist ' and has been working alone on an 
experiment with a generator and a voltometer. The only 
casualties were Judy Gage and Suzanne Leland. The 
explosion is being thoroughly investigated by super- 
sleuth Josephine Bernardin.

distinguished themselves as three of the greatest ac- 
tresses of today, appeared together last night for the 
first time in Gibsonworthybung's popular Heated Harem 
The highlight of the performance occurred when a pearl 
ring was thrown to Miss Marsz by a handsome admirer. 
Miss Welles and Miss Van De Cluster are still hopeful. 

Miss Janet Redman, alto singer, and Miss Nancy 
Selinger, expert pianist, have brought the world of 
music closer to everyone. During a recent recital two 
young gentlemen were seen to swoon. 

Miss Gretchen Fuller, famed artist, held her new 
exhibit in her temporary home in Arizona. Free drinks 
were served in the cocktail lounge. 

The twilight of the season of the social world was the

The Senior-Mids have spent a year in preparing

Seniors go off to Intervale and Baronial, your 
spirit has never wavered, and your patience has

Prep and Junior years, but this year has been differ- 
ent, for you have already begun to feel more like a 
class. You have received your class sweaters, 
written your songs and received the Senior Parlor. 
While we were at Intervale you had your brief 
moments as leaders of the school, and you exper- 
ienced a little of what you will have to do next 
year. We know what it is to be underclassmen and 
will never forget the thrill which accompanied our

Juniors, Junior-Mids 



Our Junior year does not seem very long ago. 
We remember Kow we used to wonder if we'd ever 
be Seniors. We envied them with their many 
privileges. Yet we kind of fretted a little at all the 
Senior duties we would be undertaking. How awe- 
stricken we were when the Seniors talked over the 
heavy assignments at dinner time, and daytime 
would bring them carrying a preposterous number 
of books around. "Notice in the Senior Parlor" 
always aroused our curiosity. Don't worry, Jun- 
iors and Junior-Mids, you'll be Seniors before you 
know it, and we envy you, for your best years are 
yet to come.

Preps 



How can we ever forget those first days of our 
Abbot life? We were Preps living in a new world, 
and Abbey was our comfortable home. We often 
felt left out of things and looked on enviously at 
such events as the Senior Prom and the departure 
for Intervale while we were taking our exams. 
Draper Hall was somehow overwhelming. Outside 
of meals and mail, it seemed to mean only the 
front office where continual typing took place. 
It was the building where "The Seniors" lived. 
You are young and carefree now and have been 
involved in many pranks, but Preps, there's lots of 
work ahead. You've got a great deal to look for- 
ward to in your future years, and we'll be thinking 
of you. Good luck.

The Student Coun-

class, of the Athletic 
Association, the Chris- 
tian Association, and 
the Student Government officers, meets 
every Wednesday to discuss any changes 
that might be made and any questions 
that have been brought up. It superin- 
tends Sunday night suppers, chooses 
corridor proctors, helps with nomina- 
tions for class officers, and is an im- 
portant part of the Rating Committee. 
By working with the faculty in many 
matters, the students and faculty are 
brought closer together and are able more 
purposefully to understand each other. 
As a result of these weekly meetings we 
were allowed to wear lipstick to the An- 
dover-Exeter game! We certainly felt 
wonderful when our football heroes stood 
gazing at us with their mouths hanging 
open while we proudly climbed to our 
seats in the grandstand.

A.C.A., as always, holds its important 
position as one of the main organizations 
of Abbot. It has done an excellent job this 
year with Holly Welles as its competent 
president. 

The Vesper Services, headed by the 
students, have been most enlightening. 
During one of them all the Xorthfield 
girls gave us a clear and concise picture of 
the conferences held in June. According to 
custom, each Senior dressed a doll for the 
Hindman Settlement, and they were 
packed up with other presents in time for 
Christmas. The Christmas Party turned 
out a grand success with full attendance. 
Each child present, with great enthusi- 
asm, received his qj her gifts from Biz 
Marsh who made a wonderful Santa 
Claus. The A.C.A. meetings after Sunday 
night supper were abolished this year. To 
replace them, members of the board have 
taken charge of the week-day chapel ser- 
vice on such days as Columbus Day and 
Lincoln's Birthday. 

A.C.A. sponsored the Red Cross War 
Fund Campaign and we can say with 
pride that Abbot contributed 100%. . 



Journalism at Abbot has been flourish- 
ing this year, as never before. One was 
first aware of the change when a huge 
sign appeared on the bulletin board ad- 
vertising THE NEW BLUE COURANT. 
Sally had a particularly harassed look 
about her, and one could hear her mumbl- 
ing about deadlines, going to press and all 
the other jargon of the literary world. 
Then the day arrived when Courant ap- 
peared in our mailboxes, and Sally's 
harassed look was replaced by one of 
pride as she lovingly fondled her product. 
And Courant has changed. There are more 
stories, and better ones, with wonderful 
illustrations, as well as an enlarged staff. 

We, of the Yearbook board, were 
equally busy, trying to produce what we 
hope will be one of the best yearbooks 
that Abbot has ever had. We have had 
difficulties getting our materials and 
films, and there is always the problem of 
finding extra time. But it has all been 
worth the effort, and it is with great pride 
that we say that we were on the Board of 
the Circle for 19-45.

Abbot is trying to 
contribute her share 
to the war effort, as 
she has been for the 
past three years. In- 
stead of the airplane 
spotting and Red Cross and nutrition 
classes given last year, we have knitting 
and sewing classes on Wednesday evening 
from eight to nine. At the present time 
there is an urgent need for knitted cloth- 
ing. These classes are for different coun- 
tries such as Czechoslovakia, France, 
Great Britain, Russia and Holland. 

The most interesting class seems to be 
that called "The World Today," which 
makes a point of studying various sub- 
jects of national interest. Each month, 
this group of girls, helped by Miss Hear- 
sey, Miss Roth, and other members of the 
faculty, holds an open forum in Davis 
Hall. The subjects that have been dis- 
cussed are the election this fall, the race 



problem, and Germany after the war. 
These forums have been popular and 
there are lively discussions after the talks. 
The Saturday evening programs have 
often supplemented these forums, so a 
very clear knowledge of world affairs is 
gained. 

Cynthia Smith has done a wonderful 
job with the news, having taken almost 
complete charge. Three times a week in 
chapel a Senior-Mid gives us a brief ac- 
count of the world news of the day. 

On April 28 nine representatives of this 
group went to Boston to take part in a 
discussion on Trade Relationships in the 
Post War World. This meeting was spon- 
sored by the United Nations Association, 
and eighteen prep schools around Boston 
took part. 

Through these war service groups, we 
have come to feel that we are making an 
important contribution to the war effort.

'But the firsts- haven't been served yet!" 



In this past year, we at Abbot have 
been most fortunate in having many 
gifted men and women help us shape our 
thoughts and opinions. Vespers on Sunday 
evenings have been nothing less than in- 
spiring. We shall always remember men 
such as Dr. Cleland, Dr. Calkins and Mr. 
Baldwin, not only for their keen humor 
and presentations, but also for their in- 
sight into the deep problems of life and 
their clear interpretations of a number of 
Biblical passages. 

Our Saturday evening programs have 
brought many speakers and artists to 
Abbot. We have obtained a better knowl- 
edge of the arts through such programs as 
Spanish dancing, Chinese and English 
theater, dramatic interpretations, and 
concerts by distinguished musicians. 
And, of course, we will never forget Miss 



Friskin's recital, one of the most eagerly 
awaited events of the whole year. 

Our comprehension of the world events 
has been increased by such excellent 
speakers as Mrs. Paul Robeson, Mrs. F. 
M. Taylor, and Mr. William Averitt. We 
were particularly fortunate in hearing 
Miss Margaret Walker read us some pas- 
sages from her own poetry, which brought 
us greater understanding of the Negro and 
his problems. 

All of these people have contributed 
greatly to our prospective, and we feel 
indebted to each one of them. They have 
provided us with many searching thoughts 
and have given us a wider appreciation of 
our world and its opportunities. With 
their experience and ability to guide us we 
feel ourselves better equipped to meet the 
demands of the future.

We shook when we 
had our voices tested 
for Fidelio by Miss 
Friskin and Mr. Howe. 
Then we waited for 




the list to appear on the bulletin board, 
and there were the usual exclamations, 
" Oh, I can't bear it. How did she get in? " 

But we really began to feel at home 
after the 1 first rehearsal, especially when 
Mr. Howe enforced his deadline ultima- 
tum. We chose Barbara Ball as our presi- 
dent, and Mary Jane Kurth proved to be 
an excellent accompanist. Instead of the 
Gilbert and Sullivan opera with Phillips 
we had concerts with Governor Dummer 
and Exeter. After the rehearsals for 
Christmas carols were over, we really set 
to work. The corridors of Draper re- 
echoed all winter long to strains of " Braid 
the Raven Hair" and the "Merry Widow 
Waltz. " Our concert with Governor Dum- 
mer was a great success, any way you 
want to look at it. The boys entertained 
us royally, and we all had a good time. 
We let Exeter do the travelling for the 
next concert, and they arrived to set up a 
particularly high standard for future con- 
certs. 

We wouldn't have missed this year of 
Fidelio for anything, although we don't 
think it will miss us too much next year, 
judging by the sounds coming across the 
circle from New Fidelio.

"And just what would you like?" 



The neighborly spirit 



One of our most interesting Saturday 
night programs this year was the presen- 
tation of three one-act plays by some up 
and coming actresses in the Junior and 
Junior-Mid classes. A.D.S. had their eyes 
open and undoubtedly were framing ideas 
about the future. Miss Strickland, as 
director, receives special merit for her 
work and very favorable results. In order 
of appearance the plays were Courtin' 
( 'hristina, The Neighbors and The Clod. We 
will never forget the agony we endured 
when we were praying the Union soldiers 
would not discover the Confederate hero; 
or the final tense moment just before the 
gun went off! 

Courtin" Christina provided some won- 
derful comedy, and the surprising Irish 
brogue impressed us all. The Neighbors was 
equally enjoyed. 

Great was the curiosity of the rest of the 
school when during the preceding weeks 
we would walk by the Tiffin or Rec Room 
and hear strange noises issuing forth. 
However, we were soon able to put two 
and two together, because every so often 
there was written on the blackboard in 



conspicuous letters, "Neighbors. ..Tiffin 
Room at 2:30, " or the like. The fact that 
every so often someone was not at sports 
because of play rehearsal also gave us a 
clue. 

At any rate the final productions were a 
great success and were highly appreciated 
by the many onlookers in Davis Hall. 

"What's your trouble, mister?"

ABBOT DRAMATIC SOCIETY 

Bushiull, Graf, Marsh, Esther Bufferd, President: 
Hogun, Van Clere, Bentley, Welles 

Bush continually putting up her hair: 
Holly getting Biz out of the mess she's 
made of her knitting; over in the corner 
Bee learning to knit on bobby pins; Hap- 
py so absorbed in her book that she for- 
gets her cues; Barbie Graf concentrating 
on her four lines (and we mustn't forget 



her dog's bark); and Pete and Esther in- 
tently listening to Mrs. Gray give them a 
few pointers on their scene together. . . 
yes, out of this conglomeration came 
Moorborn, one of the finest plays that has 
ever been produced by A.D.S. None of it 
could have been done without the skill 
and patience of Mrs. Gray, and to her we 
owe our thanks. Of course artists tem- 
peraments will clash, and there have been 
many times during the year that we could 
have quietly wrung each other's necks. 
But somehow we managed to get over the 
crucial points without any drastic hap- 
penings. Yes. A.D.S. has put up with a 
lot of shenanigans from us this year, but 
after all is said and done, it has all been 
loads of fun. 

It is the general opinion that after a 
play the club just dissolves, but that is not 
so. Meetings are held on every other Fri- 
day, and of course there is a gala party 
whenever the occasion calls for it. The 
spirit that exists in this small society and 
the companionship it fosters are enough 
for three or four societies, and we hope 
that it shall always be that way. 



Morbidness and old maids 



The "Bio Three' 




[46] 




Before the wood 



"But I need to be loved!" 



A strange now-you-see-it, now-you- 
don't wood; an impish, unpredictable old 
man; a cast ranging from a bored socialite 
to a matronly old woman; put it all to- 
gether, mix it up and you've almost got 
the plot of the Senior play, Dear Brutus. 
Of course, a plot wouldn't be a good plot 
without a point, and the point of this one 
was — a second chance. 

The rehearsals were lots of fun. Besides 
learning lines and watching for cues, there 
was the usual knitting, gossiping, writing 
letters, and an occasional would-be-critic 
intently listening and voicing opinions 
about the progress, backward or forward, 
of the play. 

It didn't seem possible on March 17 
that the day was really here. The panic of 
missing cues and forgetting lines was evi- 
dent — but need I go on? The play was a 
great success under the wonderful leader- 
ship of Mrs. Gray. It was she who led the 
cast (and audience) victoriously through, 
managing to keep her wits about her in 
spite of the mysterious wood and it's odd 
occupants. 

Art has been thriving this year under 
the able guidance of Miss Gay and Mrs. 



Morgan. Mrs. Morgan holds forth on 
Saturday morning with her "abandoned 
pupils." There have also been many in- 
teresting exhibits at the John Esther 
Art Gallery. 

Do you see four hands?

The Year of Sports 

Hockey this year broke in a new teach- 
er, Miss Macdonald, who proved to be a 
great success. Dressed like us in dainty 
feminine costume of longs and jacket, she 
was taken for another girl more than a 
hundred times. But she was not the only 
thing hockey broke in. Sally Allen's teeth 
and entire visage suffered losses at the 
furious onslaught of the Gargoyles. How- 
ever, it was one of the best hockev seasons 
in years, and there was great speculation 
as to who was going to win on Field day. 
After a feverish game and much roaring 
from the sidelines, the Griffins captured 
the final honors. The Gargoyles however 
have won steadily throughout the year 
and are nothing daunted by one defeat. 
Next year will find them fresh and 
flushed with new aspirations against 
the Griffins.

with pivoting to the left, and throwing to 
the right, underhand not overhand, left 
hand not right hand, and backwards not 
forwards, the ball was lucky if it landed 
within thirty yards of its intended destina- 
tion. But with a little practice and a few 
simple exercises, we soon became quite 
proficient at making baskets, and looking 
one way and throwing the other. This is 
a very tricky game and thrilling to watch. 
One would never realize the long hard 
hours of practice that have gone into per- 
fecting the ease and speed with which the 
plays were executed. 

Tennis this year featured quite a few 
up-and-coming stars. Our professionals 
practiced feverishly, perhaps too energeti- 
cally, for when Field Day came around, 
they seemed to be incapacitated, so the 
singles match was postponed. The excel- 
lent doubles matches, however, made up 
for that lack. The war has hit the tennis 
people hard in the guise of the Victory 
Ball. It looks like a tennis ball, feels like 
a baseball, and acts like a hunk of lead. 
However the champs did very well, even 
with this handicap. 




Sports 



At long last a pathetic little snowflake 
ventured into the neighborhood of Miss 
Carpenter, and we all dashed to the ski- 
room, slapped a little wax on the old 
boards, and were out on "Suicide Slope" 
before that flake ever reached the ground . 
But we didn't have to wait long for some 
real snow, and when it came it really did. 
There were afternoons when we had to 
shovel to the ski-room before we could get 
our skis, and there were also times when 
we would vainly try to do a stem turn 
with the snow around our waists. A Gar- 
goyle-Griffin competition was held on the 
hockey field, the most spectacular fea- 
tures of which were the potato race and 
the backward race. It was obvious that 
the yogi certainly had nothing on us at 
Abbot. Strive as they will they could 
never have equalled the peculiar positions 
that we attained that afternoon. It is odd 
how quickly one can completely entangle 
himself in skis and poles and snow, but 
how long it takes to get out. However, we 
finally found ourselves skiing over and 
across tufts of green grass, so we turned 
to gym and dance. 

We thought we were in condition, but

our aching. muscles soon told us otherwise. 
Many a groan was heard before we could 
again sit down in peace. But soon we were 
shinnying up the ropes and leaping grace- 
fully (?) in dance with the greatest of ease. 
The Spring Demonstration came all too 
soon, and the audience hardly recognized 
their Suzy doing all those impossible 
things. "Why my Suzy couldn't be doing 
that — but it certainly looks like her." 

Baseball in the spring could have 
helped out the Dodgers with the experts 
it produced. Speed balls and curves and 
long home runs could be seen every after- 
noon. Many a sore finger and sore head 
were suffered before we could finally 
stand up to bat without quaking and in 
the field without dreaming. The tennis 
professionals once more took to the 
courts. Our track stars closely resembled 
the Olympics with their jumps, their runs, 
and their flying disci. We were all amazed 
to watch the latter sailing through the air 
with apparent disregard for the laws of 
gravity. 

Yes, this year we have had fun, and 
without knowing it we have contributed 
vitally to the great future of a strong, 
healthy nation living in a world of peace.

Epilogue 



From the hills we have brought you, oh Mountain Laurel, 
From the far away blue of the mountain's side, 
From the clear mountain air, oh Mountain Laurel, 
We have brought you hither with us to abide. 

Bring to us beauty, oh Mountain Laurel, 
A clear vision of heights unclouded by fear, 
That our lives may be strong, oh Mountain Laurel, 
As the mountains stand firm from year unto year. 

We plant you with purpose, oh Mountain Laurel, 
A symbol of how we would grow and have grown 
From our roots here at Abbot, oh Mountain Laurel, 
May they bind us forever, oh tree, like your own.

*- More than a thousand year books have borne the 
imprint of New England's Master Craftsmen. 

Many business managers and editors of year books 
in the school and college field have written us in 
appreciation of our cooperation and helpful sug- 
gestions. This, of course, has been very gratifying 
to us and we are looking forward to the years 
ahead with the same spirit of helpfulness to the 
business managers and editors of the future.
